So many lovely choices this week it's quite hard to choose.
I voted for Maxima in Denmark wearing the camel colored coat.
I also really liked the Duchess of Cambridge whole look wearing the brown coat and Queen Maxima in the red outfit.

My favorite is Maxima's red outfit. Wonderful color and regal style. I just love the cape. I also loved Mary's beige and purple look, and Catherine's brown outfit. Both faultless and beautiful looks.

I voted for Mary on 17th March. She looked so elegant with a simple coat, nice heels and a hat.

I voted for our Mary. I thought she looked really snazzy in her matching boots and hat.

I've voted for Máxima in Germany with her vibrant red outfit because she surely stands up among all the others.

I also like the outfit she wore in Denmark with the brown hat, the beige-purple outfit from Mary and the DoC dark blue coat.

I voted for Maxima's red outfit she wore during her visit to Germany, too. It's just perfection, and she looked great as well. The brooch is also lovely.

I also voted for Mabel's outfit she wore to the Friso Awards. I haven't seen her in lace that much, but it really suits her.

Honourable mentions go to Mary on March 17, Letizia on March 16 and Catherine on March 18. Another good fashion week!

Difficult choice, but I voted for the Duchess of Cambridge. Her outfit is nice, though not spectacular. But she just looks so happy, and her hair is up and out of her face! She looks quite polished for being in the late stage of pregnancy.

I kinda liked Maxima's coat worn on arrival in Denmark which isn't on there so I've gone for her bright red outfit instead.

We almost need a best evening ensemble as well.....

I voted for Maxima's magnificent red ensemble in Germany. I found it very interesting that for Denmark, a constitutional monarchy, she was elegantly bejewelled and the warm welcome of the Danish royal family meant that they were all over the news and let Maxima save the best for the State Banquet where she dazzled very appropriately in a sapphire blue gown and a total bling out with the incredible big gun Sapphire tiara, earrings, brooch and bracelet.

But Germany is a not a monarchy so she kept her jewellery elegant but subtle using colour to make an impact, and boy did that red ensemble make an impact. That ensemble shouldn't have worked with it'ssaturation of red. Red hat, cape, dress, gloves, clutch and shoes, but it did and I would venture to say that only someone like Maxima could have pulled that off. Germany was under no illusion, Queen Maxima had arrived.

I voted for Maxima's outfit in Denmark because I like the choice of coat and hat together.

I nearly voted for Queen Maxima because I was so thrilled at seeing some bright colour again. But the more I looked at the outfit the more I disliked certain details: the hat is not to my taste, the diagonal pleat looked interesting at first but now I find it strange. And maybe it would have been nicer to have some accessories in a contrasting colour like black or light brown.

In the end I voted for CP Mary in the nude coat and dark purple accessories. It has a timeless elegance and I love how the purple accessories complete the outfit.... But it was a tough decision!

This is a really tough poll this week! We have seen some incredible outfits recently and had Queen Maxima's grey arrival coat for the visit to Denmark been on the list I am convinced I would have voted for that one! I also really loved her red outfit here from her hat all the way down to the shoes, but it was the brooch that set it off for me - so in fairness I have voted for CP Mary's nude outfit with the lovely purple accessories!

My vote went to Maxima's stunning red outfit. I thought the cut of the dress was very elegant. The colour itself was just breathtaking and even though everything was immaculately matched, it did not seem overwhelming in the least because Maxima seems to have the personality to carry off such bold outfits. On someone else the effect might not have been the same. I also really like the turban style hats she wears now and then, very chic.

I voted 'other' as I actually liked the grey arrival coat of Maxima in Denmark. And esp. the dark blue outfit under the coat.

For the res: the red outfit stands out due to the colour but the outfit isn't that special. I prefer Mary's beige outfit or Maxima's detective coat.

We had so many nice outfits. It wasn't easy to choose.
I voted for Queen Maxima in Germany. She looks good in red and I like the style of the dress.
I also liked Mary on March 17 and 18: the beige coat was lovely with the purple accessories and she looked good with the light grey cape; and the Duchess of Cambridge on March 17, the brown coat was simple but nice.

This one was hard because there were so many great outfits. I went back and forth between Maxima's red outfit and Catherine's outfit from the 17th. Ultimately I choose Catherine's because I thought it was simple, yet elegant.

My other favorites were Mathilde's coat dress and the beige coat Mary wore on the 17th.

I also loved the gray wrap coat that Mary wore on the 18th, but thought it didn't go very well with the rest of her outfit.
